Memo to the media and America: his inane tweets ARE NOT jokes.

Please stop framing them that way!

They're not funny and are intended to cause harm.

1. If you just came to that conclusion

youíre really late. The world is quite aware that heís dangerous. Yet they laugh at him because he hates that. Not because they donít get it.

2. I've known since Nov 2016 and yes laugh at him.

What I don't do is say "he's joking" when he tweets his garbage. I wish that would stop.

3. I don't know of anyone who does

Except maybe his people, be they the MAGATs, or his staff or his appointees or his wife referencing his locker room trashmouth.

The rest of the world, outside of Putin, is deadly serious about him, whether they joke or not.

5. Do you think they think it's all a big party?

Because when Iíve seen people talking about Trump in the media they take his antics very seriously, even when itís delivered as laughing at him.

Laughter is very complex. It isnít always about fun and games, or frivolity. Itís also used as a means to ridicule people. To mock them.

6. I'll admit I said the Seth Moulton tweet was a decent zinger.

But I didn't laugh because the President is a fucking rapist sociopath.
